  1. Little Rock Midtown Area

    Don't see a Westin or Hyatt going there if they stick to their plans of one hotel being 120 rooms and the other 90.
  2. South Main and the Quapaw Quarter

    Not so fast. Two groups, one made up of residents and the other being the Quapaw Quarter Association are fighting this project. They are saying it doesn't fit the design standards. My question is what design standards? The standards that allowed the drugstore at 17th and Main or the shipping containers used by The Root or the number of houses designed by the U of A in the area? When looking at this section of Main one would have to conclude there are no design standards.
  3. First quarter updates: Boyle Building status remains unknown. The Donaghey Building should see work start this quarter. Holiday Inn Express is still listed on the developers website and renderings have been posted. Postings state it will be coming soon. 12 Star Flats will see tenants moving in this weekend. Apartments in the Rose Building on Main Street are still under construction. Work also continues on the AC Hotel at Capitol and Louisiana.
  4. Little Rock Midtown Area

    Long time landmark for the area, The Summit House, is no more. It is taking the name The Highland Midtown along with a makeover including the exterior color.
  5. The Frederica Hotel will soon be getting a tenant to take over the available restaurant space on the ground floor. The owner of the recently closed Southern Gourmasian will open TAE in that space.
  6. The church will be putting people on the street Sunday mornings when otherwise they wouldn't be there. With two services it might provide incentive for someone to open a coffee/cafe establishment which would provide breakfast/brunch for those attending as well as something for office workers during the week and later options for those attending the REP.
  7. South Main and the Quapaw Quarter

    A new restaurant has been announced for 1220 South Main. The new venture will be owned by the owners of The Root and their kitchen manager, it will offer Latin American street food. Dos Rocas Beer & Tacos plans to open this summer across from Rock Town and just south of Core's new public house.
  8. New Life Church Downtown Little Rock opens tomorrow at 610 Main. Picture from NLC Facebook page.
  9. South Main and the Quapaw Quarter

    The project above has been replaced by another apartment project which will contain 16 units on two levels as well as 5 retail spaces on the ground floor. Completion is expected in the Spring of next year.
  10. A few examples of signs painted on non-street facing walls that exist in the downtown area. One from long ago and the other done within the past few months: Just three blocks away with sign painted on the rear of the building the old Archer Drug building. This one just a few blocks away showing the side of Fassler Hall painted just a few months ago.
  11. The River Market

    Waiting for the St. Patrick's Day Parade.
  12. South Main and the Quapaw Quarter

    Today marks the opening of Core Public House at 1214 South Main, which is across the street from the soon to be relocated Rock Town Distillery.
  13. East Village

    March 26th is the date for Cromwell to be relocated into the Paint Factory. Leasing in going on for 12 Star Flats at this time. Also, Cromwell has announced that an outdoor dinning area and craft beer garden is under construction at 1212 E. Sixth, it will be know as The Rail Yard. The building in which Rock Town Distillery will be vacating shortly will be redeveloped and MT expects to announce new occupants within the next few months. Just east and on the riverfront the new Rock City Yacht Club will open phase I this summer and soon to follow construction will start for the Residents at Harbor Town. These apartments will consist of 176 units and should open in 2019.
  14. The River Market

    Fassler Hall is now open.
  15. Argenta

    NLR/Argenta should go back to being the 8th ward.
